CQB:
fluted bull barrel(hood as well)
reverse/flush crowned barrel
fully supported spring guide cap
naked slide(Wilson logo on both sides of slide behind cocking serrations)
speed chute magwell
single side safety
3 hole trigger
cocobolo sunburst grips
black AT finish
fiber optic front sight(possible gold bead)
all black battle rear sight
flush cut/recessed slide stop
single side safety

Sounds a bit right to me.

What do you guys think? (like I care, since I'm paying for it :rofl:)

This will be my fourth and "hopefully" last Wilson. :cool:

Would love to get a Wilson made. Maybe someday when I have an extra 3K laying around.

All looks good but I would change the following

Gold bead or tritium front. (Not a fan of fiber)

Go Walnut Grips. They look wicked nice.

Flush cut crowned barrel.

I wish wilson could put a custom recoil spring cover with the winged wilson emblem.

What finish? High polish Blue?

Let me know if they offer multiple discount. We can order a matching pair. Hahha. I am actually thinking of ordering another CQB because I love mine so much.

I'd skip front serrations in favor of ball cuts. Just ordered my own custom 1911 a couple months back.

Ever look at the nighthawk G10 golfball grips?

You must have bumped your head..black AT while being birthed so close to metaloy...

As noted
- sans FCS
- solid black trigger (short for me)
- new round butt mag well (tell me you've seen it...very cool)
- not a musical instrument or precision long range rifle so I'd skip the bull flute
- skip the dainty FO FS and go trij HD
- skip coco star whatever and go black OP II's

They don't offer the starburst grips in any kind of wood but cocobolo, I have flush cut/reverse crowned barrel specd, you just missed it and am think of a gold bead. My Wilson Stealth will arrive today and that wiil be my first experience with a gold bead front sight, so I have a little time to see if I like it. Since this won't be a carry gun and will just range work, I'll skip the tritium on this build.

I HATE FCS! :puking::rofl:I'm talking about the Wilson logo eagle on both sides of the slide behind THE cocking serrations. The one's on the back of the slide. As for the grips, I tend to swap them like women change shoes, so it would wear several different G10 grips from time to time.

Sadly, Wilson doesn't offer hardchrome as a finish anymore. I'm going with a silver 3 hole trigger because that's what I like, but I have been leaning towards the black short solid Harrison Extreme triggers on my black guns. I may go with a gold bead, based on how I like the one on my Wilson Stealth, which arrives today :supergrin:. I'm going to skip a trtium front on this one, as it will probably never see any CC time. This will be a range gun, so FO or GB makes more sense for this one. I really like the flutes on bull barrel in my Wilson ULCc, so I'm going full flutes. I've got plenty of other bull barreled guns with solid barrels already.

Yes. It is very stupid. :steamed: Chris, at Metaloy, is literally, right down the road. And IMO, is the best hardchromer in the buisiness. One reason I order all of my Wilson's with AT, is that 1) it is pretty good stuff and 2) I can always get them hardchromed later. :whistling: :cool: :supergrin:
